The place and the actors:
As there are different types of live action videos, the set varies and it depends on your scenario, on what you want to create and communicate.

The same happens with actors and every element involved in your video. You could be the actor of your own video, if you are filming an interview (about you), for instance. On the contrary, if you want a promotional video for one of your products, you could, for instance, film people from outside your company whose reactions and feelings (created by your product) will have an impact on the target audience. They could also be influential people who can influence your audience and who will be able to move them towards your company.

The set and production:

For a one or two-minute video, the time between the moment when our team films the different video footage and when we give you the video, also, depends on the type of videos because some videos require an amount of work on filmed footage more important than others. Indeed, while for an interview we will have only few footage to assemble with one another, for other live action videos, it will require several days of filming and then several weeks in studios to get the final result.
